Help Me Pray invites the reader to imagine being part of a heavenly discussion group engaged in an ongoing conversation about prayer. The saints had weaknesses and struggles with prayer, just like us. They’re credible advisors because they reveal what God can do in ordinary human beings who trust him and dialogue with him. And they aren’t detached observers of our attempts to pray—they are a great “cloud of witnesses” encouraging us with their words and even praying for us. Help Me Pray is a valuable treasury for anyone who wants to learn more about prayer.
